UKSD Secures Growth Funding Facility From Arbuthnot Commercial ABL
Arbuthnot Commercial Asset Based Lending has structured and provided flexible working capital for UK Security Doors Ltd to enable the company to achieve its ambitions for future growth. Dynamically linked to the company’s sales, the confidential invoice discount line will allow UKSD to grow profitably through new contracts and increased business with existing customers.
From its base in the West Midlands, UKSD designs, manufactures and installs bespoke aluminum doors, windows and curtain walls serving a wide range of clients across the UK including specifiers, architects, entrepreneurs, business and retail sectors, housing associations and local authorities.
UKSD products carry Secured by Design (SBD) and Certisecure accreditations, both of which are specified in large projects. SBD is the official police safety initiative that works to improve the safety of buildings and their immediate surroundings. The strict STS 202 certification covers not only UKSD’s own designs, but also its thermal break profile, an important selling point for new construction developments unique to the company.
Commenting on the new facility, Joshua Wheal, Director of Business Development at UK Security Doors Ltd, said: “The facility structured by Arbuthnot Commercial ABL will free up substantial working capital to fuel geographic expansion and new investment in manufacturing capacity and product innovation. The Arbuthnot team were brilliant from start to finish. Their hands-on approach ensured the smooth delivery of the installation, working closely with all parties to remove any obstacles along the way. We look forward to strengthening UKSD’s reach as a nationwide installer and driving future growth and innovation with the support of Arbuthnot.
Andrew Rutherford, Commercial Director at Arbuthnot Commercial ABL, said: “While many of our deals are acquisition-driven, it’s equally rewarding to work on deals that enable companies to achieve their ambitions through organic growth. . This transaction underscores the inherent strength and flexibility of a well-structured debt financing facility by providing a continuous flow of working capital to support growth. We wish the UKSD leadership team every success as it continues to expand its market presence. “
